Robson and Jim’s Icelandic Fly Fishing Adventure

The actor has been fishing since he was a child and credits it as a key tool in managing his mental health. He’s fished in more than 130 countries all over the world.

During the show, the actor reveals the difficulties he’s had in his life with alcohol and drugs.

“I needed something in life that made sense and, for me, fishing makes sense,” he said.

“Early on in my acting career I was reckless. It was all about Robson. But I’ve learnt so much from fishing and have an inner peace now that had been missing.”

It’s not the only show where Robson has preached the benefits of nature either. He’s also hosted Extreme Fishing with Robson Green, Robson Green’s Wild Swimming Adventure and Walking Hadrian’s Wall with Robson Green, among others.

Is Robson married? Does he have children?

Robson married his first wife occupational therapist Alison Olgivie in 1991, however they separated eight years later.

The actor met his second wife former Page 3 model Vanya Seager in 1995 and in 2000 they had a son called Taylor Seager-Green. The couple married in 2001 but in 2013 announced that their marriage had “irretrievably broken down”.

The first episode of Robson and Jim’s Icelandic Fly Fishing Adventure is on ITV, tonight, at 10.45pm.
